Conjunction-junction, what’s your function?
Remember singing along to those Saturday morning cartoons and learning just a little about grammar and the constitution without even realizing it? Bring back the glory days of your childhood and infuse a little educational fun into your own children at Children’s Theatre of Charlotte’s latest production, “Schoolhouse Rock Live!”
With a mosh pit, ushers dressed as roadies, confetti cannons where the mess sticks around between shows, a live band and more, the “Schoolhouse Rock” you thought you knew is becoming something totally different. The fun doesn’t stop there - also in house for this rock show: haze machines, strobe lights and larger-than-life concert-style projections.
“This show is like no other,” Adam Burke, Children’s Theatre of Charlotte’s artistic director, said. “Children will think they’re at a rock concert, and parents won’t be able to stop singing along to the songs from their childhoods.”
